Size MP3 album: 1163 mb. | Size FLAC album: 1842 mb.

The Sun Ra discography is one of the largest discographies in music history. Jazz keyboardist, bandleader and composer Sun Ra recorded dozens of singles and over one hundred full-length albums, comprising well over 1000 songs, and making him one of the most prolific recording artists of the 20th century.

Listen free to Sun Ra – The Singles (A Foggy Day, Daddy's Gonna Tell You No Lie (Demo Version) and more). A great collection bringing together rare 7" singles from '55-59, primarily studio recordings under a number of different band names and configurationsl. Including a couple of configurations of the Arkestra (his Astro Infinity Arkestra, Le Sun Ra and his Arkestra) bands include The Su Sounds, The Cosmic Rays, The Qualities, Yochanan, Juanita Rogers With Mr. V's Five Joys.

Compilation of rare Sun Ra 7" singles originally on the El Saturn label and pressed in very small quantities between 20 - 100 copies. Styles range from doo wop, novelty pop, rhythm n' blues, straight-ahead jazz - plus early strains of the free-synth skronk that Ra would later explore in the '60s and '70s. Hard to get your head around the whole double cd as the tracks are all quite short and fly by pretty quickly. Needs a bit of intensive listening.

In addition to hundreds of studio albums, live recordings, and compilations, the Sun Ra discography also contains dozens of singles, many of them dating from the early days of the artist's career, before he really took off for the outer cosmos. His singles have been collected before, particularly on the 1996 double CD The Singles, issued by Evidence Records.
